Ray Parlour suggested on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Friday morning (January 29) that Mathieu Debuchy should chose Sunderland over Aston Villa.
"Both in a relegation battle, obviously Sunderland have more chances of staying up than Villa," said former Arsenal star Parlour.
"Probably Sunderland would be the best choice, I am sure," added the Englishman.
Debuchy has struggled for playing time at Arsenal so far this season despite his return to fitness.
Hector Bellerin has been superb this campaign, and his performances at right-back is keeping Debuchy out of the team.
The 30-year-old right-back is a good player, but he needs to play regularly in order to make the France squad for the Euro 2016 finals.
Ideally, it would be better for the former Newcastle United star to play for a top Premier League club, but it seems that the only options he has are Villa and Sunderland.
